Today was the perfect spring day, finally! Cool and breezy and raining. I loved it! You are probably wondering why I was so happy to have a chilly day full of rain, but then you would be forgetting my new gold raincoat which I got to wear at last when it was not too hot. And it looked amazing. Except for one thing which is that it's not really gold--it's sort of a bronzey green. Yes, I had that same thought, too, but it's nylon and sort of iridescent and is apparently one of those colors that is one thing under fluorescent lights and completely another in natural light so when you buy it in the store you are sure it is gold but outside it is green. So it may have clashed a teeny bit with my pink dress and my bright blue floral rain boots. I will have to re-think those rain boots. Maybe copper ones! Ooh, let's check on Zappo's!
No worries, though. It is supposed to rain again tomorrow and I have the perfect olive shirt and tweed pants to wear.
This man in India is having a worse day than me. He apparently let his 9 year old son drive his Ferrari and took a video of it and posted it on Youtube. Here is a still from the video
You would think that if you are smart enough to have accumulated enough money to buy a Ferrari, that you would also be smart enough not to let your unlicensed child who can't see over the steering wheel drive it. But that would not be true in this case, and the police have charged him with a crime. He'll probably get off with a small fine that won't be anything near enough to prevent him from doing it again since he already let the boy drive a Lamborghini and a Bentley. Somebody should cheat him out of all his money quit so he stops endangering the rest of India. So thank you, Mr. Bad Father, for reminding me that indulging the children for my own entertainment is a bad idea, and to be grateful that Child 1 is not only old enough to drive legally, she is also a very safe driver and her car cost nowhere near $4 million. Honestly, a 9 year old driving a car worth $4 million which is like a billion rupees! I'll stick with our Volvo, thank you very much. Much cheaper to replace if it gets wrecked, which it won't. Right, Child 1?
